RAPE IN THE BIBLE

Rape is one of the most heinous crimes imaginable. Yet few people know that the Bible often
condones and even approves of rape. How anyone can get their moral guidance from a book that
allows rape escapes me. Perhaps they have been lied to about the Bible and carefully detoured
around all the nasty stuff in the Bible.

So grab your Bibles and follow along as I show you all the nasty rapes that your priests and
preachers don't want to tell you about. Note that in many places in the Bible there are references
to "taking a wife". Don't be fooled into thinking that these were voluntary marriages. This first
quote clearly shows that murder and force were used to "take" these wives.

1) Murder, rape, and pillage at Jabesh-gilead (Judges 21:10-24 NLT)

So they sent twelve thousand warriors to Jabesh-gilead with orders to kill everyone there,
including women and children. "This is what you are to do," they said. "Completely destroy all
the males and every woman who is not a virgin." Among the residents of Jabesh-gilead they
found four hundred young virgins who had never slept with a man, and they brought them to the
camp at Shiloh in the land of Canaan.

The Israelite assembly sent a peace delegation to the little remnant of Benjamin who were
living at the rock of Rimmon. Then the men of Benjamin returned to their homes, and the four
hundred women of Jabesh-gilead who were spared were given to them as wives. But there were
not enough women for all of them. The people felt sorry for Benjamin because the LORD had
left this gap in the tribes of Israel. So the Israelite leaders asked, "How can we find wives for
the few who remain, since all the women of the tribe of Benjamin are dead? There must be heirs
for the survivors so that an entire tribe of Israel will not be lost forever. But we cannot give them
our own daughters in marriage because we have sworn with a solemn oath that anyone who
does this will fall under God's curse."

Then they thought of the annual festival of the LORD held in Shiloh, between Lebonah and
Bethel, along the east side of the road that goes from Bethel to Shechem. They told the men of
Benjamin who still needed wives, "Go and hide in the vineyards. When the women of Shiloh
come out for their dances, rush out from the vineyards, and each of you can take one of them
home to be your wife! And when their fathers and brothers come to us in protest, we will tell
them, 'Please be understanding. Let them have your daughters, for we didn't find enough wives
for them when we destroyed Jabesh-gilead. And you are not guilty of breaking the vow since you
did not give your daughters in marriage to them.'" So the men of Benjamin did as they were
told. They kidnapped the women who took part in the celebration and carried them off to the
land of their own inheritance. Then they rebuilt their towns and lived in them. So the assembly
of Israel departed by tribes and families, and they returned to their own homes.
Obviously these women were repeatedly raped. These sick bastards killed and raped an entire
town and then wanted more virgins, so they hid beside the road to kidnap and rape some more.
How can anyone see this as anything but evil?

2) Murder, rape and pillage of the Midianites (Numbers 31:7-18 NLT)

They attacked Midian just as the LORD had commanded Moses, and they killed all the men.
All five of the Midianite kings – Evi, Rekem, Zur, Hur, and Reba – died in the battle. They also
killed Balaam son of Beor with the sword. Then the Israelite army captured the Midianite
women and children and seized their cattle and flocks and all their wealth as plunder. They
burned all the towns and villages where the Midianites had lived. After they had gathered the
plunder and captives, both people and animals, they brought them all to Moses and Eleazar the
priest, and to the whole community of Israel, which was camped on the plains of Moab beside
the Jordan River, across from Jericho.

Moses, Eleazar the priest, and all the leaders of the people went to meet them outside the
camp. But Moses was furious with all the military commanders who had returned from the
battle. "Why have you let all the women live?" he demanded. "These are the very ones who
followed Balaam's advice and caused the people of Israel to rebel against the LORD at Mount
Peor. They are the ones who caused the plague to strike the LORD's people. Now kill all the
boys and all the women who have slept with a man. Only the young girls who are virgins may
live; you may keep them for yourselves.

Clearly Moses and God approves of rape of virgins.

3) More Murder Rape and Pillage (Deuteronomy 20:10-14)

As you approach a town to attack it, first offer its people terms for peace. If they accept your
terms and open the gates to you, then all the people inside will serve you in forced labor. But if
they refuse to make peace and prepare to fight, you must attack the town. When the LORD your
God hands it over to you, kill every man in the town. But you may keep for yourselves all the
women, children, livestock, and other plunder. You may enjoy the spoils of your enemies that the
LORD your God has given you.

What kind of God approves of murder, rape, and slavery?

4) Laws of Rape (Deuteronomy 22:28-29 NLT)

If a man is caught in the act of raping a young woman who is not engaged, he must pay fifty
pieces of silver to her father. Then he must marry the young woman because he violated her, and
he will never be allowed to divorce her.

What kind of lunatic would make a rape victim marry her attacker? Answer: God.

5) Death to the Rape Victim (Deuteronomy 22:23-24 NAB)


If within the city a man comes upon a maiden who is betrothed, and has relations with her, you
shall bring them both out of the gate of the city and there stone them to death: the girl because
she did not cry out for help though she was in the city, and the man because he violated his
neighbors wife.

It is clear that God doesn't give a damn about the rape victim. He is only concerned about the
violation of another mans "property".

6) David's Punishment - Polygamy, Rape, Baby Killing, and God's "Forgiveness"


(2 Samuel 12:11-14 NAB)

Thus says the Lord: 'I will bring evil upon you out of your own house. I will take your wives
[plural] while you live to see it, and will give them to your neighbor. He shall lie with your wives
in broad daylight. You have done this deed in secret, but I will bring it about in the presence of
all Israel, and with the sun looking down.'
Then David said to Nathan, "I have sinned against the Lord." Nathan answered David: "The
Lord on his part has forgiven your sin: you shall not die. But since you have utterly spurned the
Lord by this deed, the child born to you must surely die." [The child dies seven days later.]

This has got to be one of the sickest quotes of the Bible. God himself brings the completely
innocent rape victims to the rapist. What kind of pathetic loser would do something so evil?
And then he kills a child! This is sick, really sick!

7) Rape of Female Captives (Deuteronomy 21:10-14 NAB)

"When you go out to war against your enemies and the LORD, your God, delivers them into
your hand, so that you take captives, if you see a comely woman among the captives and become
so enamored of her that you wish to have her as wife, you may take her home to your house. But
before she may live there, she must shave her head and pare her nails and lay aside her captive's
garb. After she has mourned her father and mother for a full month, you may have relations
with her, and you shall be her husband and she shall be your wife. However, if later on you lose
your liking for her, you shall give her her freedom, if she wishes it; but you shall not sell her or
enslave her, since she was married to you under compulsion."

Once again God approves of forcible rape.

8) Rape and the Spoils of War (Judges 5:30 NAB)

They must be dividing the spoils they took: there must be a damsel or two for each man, Spoils
of dyed cloth as Sisera's spoil, an ornate shawl or two for me in the spoil. (Judges 5:30 NAB)

9) Sex Slaves (Exodus 21:7-11 NLT)

When a man sells his daughter as a slave, she will not be freed at the end of six years as the
men are. If she does not please the man who bought her, he may allow her to be bought back
again. But he is not allowed to sell her to foreigners, since he is the one who broke the contract
with her. And if the slave girl's owner arranges for her to marry his son, he may no longer treat
her as a slave girl, but he must treat her as his daughter. If he himself marries her and then
takes another wife, he may not reduce her food or clothing or fail to sleep with her as his wife. If
he fails in any of these three ways, she may leave as a free woman without making any payment.
(Exodus 21:7-11 NLT)

10) God Assists Rape and Plunder (Zechariah 14:1-2 NAB)

Lo, a day shall come for the Lord when the spoils shall be divided in your midst. And I will
gather all the nations against Jerusalem for battle: the city shall be taken, houses plundered,
women ravished; half of the city shall go into exile, but the rest of the people shall not be
removed from the city. (Zechariah 14:1-2 NAB)
